    What a weird name for an MRT station. Should be called River Valley MRT instead. Same for Beauty World and Mayflower and Springleaf.

      Disagree. Great World bears a lot of meaning, especially for the elderly who reminisce the good old days of ‘Da Shi Jie’, which was one of the ‘worlds’ amongst the three major ‘worlds’ – Great World, Gay World, New World.
